“Players can now transfer characters from one game world to another through the LOTRO game launcher. In the world selection window, you will see the ‘Transfer’ button. Click on that and you will see all the worlds and the characters you have on each. You can choose to move just one character, all characters, shared items, or no shared items to a target world of your choosing.”
Don’t forget that there are special rules for shared items, houses, and kinships too. Those of you not moving might want to log in your old characters to secure your names; transferring characters will be able to yoink the names of characters that haven’t been active in the last year.
If you’re making that journey, which server are you landing on?
